Default Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) Explained

There has been a new article posted.

Title: Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) Explained
URL: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/263

Here is a snippet:
"Several Intel CPUs come with the Intel Virtualization Technology (VT). Formerly known as Vanderpool, this technology enables a CPU to act as if you have several independent computers, in order to enable several operating systems to run at the same time on the same machine. In this tutorial we will explain everything you need to know about this technology."

Comments on this article are welcome.

Best regards,

Default VMware's VT VMM is available now.

VMware's Workstation 5.5 and free Player 1.0 products include support for Intel's VT.

I would also be careful about your performance assumptions; things are not always as they appear.

Default Thanks

Thanks a lot man for the info. I really didn't know about this. I'll update the tutorial with this info.

Cheers,

Athlonite,

Absolutely, I will create a similar tutorial for AMD's counterpart.

Thanks,
Gabriel.

Default Limitations without VT

A Virtual Machine can be created and run even if the processor doesn't have VT but with some limited functionality such as, in VirtualBox, I won't be able to assign more than 1 processor to the VM and won't be able to run 64-bit guest (virtual) machines even if my dual core CPU has the EM64T instructions but the lack of VT implies that those extended instructions can't be passed onto the VM.
